Wriston Summer Exhibition Series: Artist & Collector: La Vera Pohl
La Vera Pohl (1901-1981) was a Milwaukee art historian, artist, and collector who studied in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s. She collected around 220 prints, paintings, and drawings by early 20th-century German artists at a time when most Americans were unaware of modern German art. While in Germany Pohl also studied under expressionist painter Hans Thuar and received a Ph.D. in art history from the University of Bonn in 1939, writing on the American Regionalists. This exhibition will feature highlights from Lawrence University's Pohl Collection of German Expressionism as well as some of Pohl's own paintings and papers.
The Wriston Summer Exhibition Series is an annual summer exhibition in the Wriston Art Galleries intended to engage the Fox Valley community in a conversation about artworks and artists of the Midwest.
